What’s new in the region this summer?
Looking for a different kind of activity or excursion? The Memphremagog region has many new ideas for you this summer! The following are just a few of our discoveries for 2013.
- Champagne method interpretation centre
The Cep d’Argent
vineyard has launched its new interpretation centre on the champagne method. This is a veritable little museum, where the winemakers and their family’s expertise are on display—six generations’ worth! The two proprietor brothers, who are from the celebrated Champagne region, are proud to share their knowledge with visitors, particularly the Champagne method of disgorging bottles of sparkling wine.
At Plage des Cantons beach, on Lake Memphremagog, you can try stand up paddle boarding, also called SUP
. The sport is a mix of surfing and kayaking, where you paddle standing up on a large, stable board. Various other related activities are offered: yoga courses on the SUP, a meandering guided tour of the Rivière-aux-Cerises marsh, and basic individual rentals.
1- “Destination: Pond Plant Life” – An excursion in a rabaska canoe on the Étang aux Cerises, where you’ll find carnivorous plants and fragrant flowering shrubs.
Wednesdays and Fridays, 10 to 11:30 a.m.
2- “Expedition at Dusk” – Enjoy this special moment in a rabaska canoe as day turns to night and the animals emerge from the shadows.
Thursdays and Sundays, 6 to 7:30 p.m.
3- “Stukely Shoreline” – Explore the edge of magnificent Lake Stukely by kayak, with a park warden to guide you.
Tuesdays and Saturdays, 6:30 to 7:30 p.m.
Have a wonderful visit!
